"An excellent window into a time when sport and society were wildly different from today, and it successfully reminds us of Mordecai Brown's rightful place in baseball's collective memory."-Tim Denevi, Aethlon: The Journal of Sport Literature -- Tim Denevi Aethlon "Deadball aficionados, baseball fans in general, and those loving a well written story should read this great book."-Mark Dugo, The Inside Game The Inside Game "Among the great pleasures of the narrative is the authors' ability to recreate the gritty atmosphere of early baseball. By contrast, today's game seems sedate. Rivalries were intense and local (within the Three I League-Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, for example). Dangers lurked from mobsters, brawling opponents and teammates, and head-hunting pitchers. Umpiring was a high-risk profession."-Steve Golos, Ohioana Quarterly -- Steve Golos Ohioana Quarterly
